Blues and rock electric guitar great Eric Gales and his wife and bandmate LaDonna Gales have both contracted COVID-19.
Gales has therefore rescheduled his 2021 UK tour to February 2022. The tour follows the release of his album ‘The Bookends’ via Provogue/Mascot Label Group in 2019. The album features collaborations with B. Slade, Doyle Bramhall II and Beth Hart.
Tickets for all dates are on sale via www.thegigcartel.com. Previously bought tickets for all shows are still valid. Customers unable to attend the rescheduled date should contact their original point of purchase for a refund.
Meantime, Larry Walker, a friend of the Gale family, has started a GoFundMe page, with all donations going towards covering the musicians’ medical and living expenses.
Said Walker, “As with most professional musicians they have been without work since last March due to the COVID-19 Pandemic as all live music venues have been shut down.”
We here at Spiral Earth wish both a speedy recovery.
